Status: Dead and archived for posterity. It might come dead for a v2. Ask q3k.
q3k's pipedream of an intra-Hackerspace (and not only) alternate IP network, based on point-to-point links and BGP. Currently centered around the Warsaw Hackerspace.
Currently, there is one assignment authority, and that is the Warsaw Hackerspace. For assignment, please contact email@example.com.
We use the 32-bit private ASN numbering scheme, as defined by RFC6996. Each system that is part of the WAN must have an AS number assigned.
|ASN||OrgName||PoC||Physical presence||Willing to peer physically?|
|4242424242||Warsaw Hackerspacefirstname.lastname@example.org||Warsaw, ul. Wolność 2A||Yes. Radio within LoS|
|email@example.com||Garching, Bayern, Germany||Maybe? Freifunk MUC?|
|4250000002||Hackerspace Krakowfirstname.lastname@example.org||Cracow, Zacisze 5/P1||Probably ;)|
|4250000003||Dragon Sectoremail@example.com||n/a (Internet)||No.|
|4250000004||Nibylandiafirstname.lastname@example.org||Warsaw, ul. ?|
|email@example.com||Warsaw, ul. Jaktorowska|
|4250000009||archnet||on demand via q3k@hspl||Warsaw|
|firstname.lastname@example.org||Kraków, ul. Kluzeka||sure, will try mesh soon|
|email@example.com||Kallang Road, Singapore||No.|
|firstname.lastname@example.org||Warsaw, ul. Wolność 2A||Yes.|
We use the 24-bit RFC1918 pool. When we run out, we'll figure out what to do. Bear in mind, a location can use IPv4 outside this pool (or overlapping), but they will need to be NATted.
We need to figure this out soon.
Since we base off the technology stack of the Internet, security is mostly by trust. This means that, if you join hswan, you should take precautions by securing your local network. Remember to:
With these precautions in place you should be able to experience the fun of having a world-wide Hackerspace WAN without putting your network in danger
q3k does not really enjoy the idea of being locked into one piece of software. Everything speaks BGP, and the physical link choice is left for the peers to decide (OpenVPN/IPSec/ATM/MPLS/CAT6/Fiber/Radio…).
Also, hswan is more fun and less secure.
Same concept - hswan was conjured up before q3k was aware of dn42.
hswan is also compatible with the HSWAW address space and has more blocks available… for now.
You are free to use the following services:
If you are @HSWAW, you are in HSWAN! Your laptop is statefully firewalled (only outgoing connections are allowed), don't worry. Additionally, if you host anything in our Lab, it will be accessible to people from the WAN.
